Round of Beef, Southern Style

Author: Top of the Rock Astronaut / Labels:

Take a 6 or 8 pound piece of round of beef. Heat a large skillet very hot, grease with a bit of fat from the meat and quickly sear and brown the meat on all sides. With a sharp knife cut gashes around the sides and sprinkle in each gash salt, pepper and a pinch of cloves. Place in a deep baking dish with 3 blades of mace, 1 cupful of capers or pickled nasturtium seeds, a bunch of parsley, 3 sliced lemons, and sufficient claret to almost cover the meat. Cover closely and bake in a moderate oven for 4 hours. Serve hot or cold. If hot slightly thicken the gravy, season to taste and serve.
